                          SCOPE OF WORK FOR
         THE DEVELOPMENT OF DECONSTRUCTION TRAINING PROGRAM
             AT KAUFMAN & BROAD’S MATHER HOUSING PROJECT

General Information
This scope of work is for an agreement between the California Integrated Waste Management
Board (CIWMB) and the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) for an
amount not to exceed $100,000. SHRA will contract for deconstruction services with a
contractor that has access to the Mather housing development project. SHRA will require the
contractor to complete the tasks outlined below to provide training on deconstruction practices.

“Deconstruction” is the careful dismantling of a building in order to recover construction
materials. It is a labor-intensive process, and in the current market place, few workers have the
skills necessary to dismantle a building in such a fashion that the integrity of the material is
preserved. If workers can be trained to use efficient, economical methods of deconstructing
buildings, a large quantity of construction materials could be recovered for reuse or recycling
rather than being disposed at landfills.

In developing the deconstruction training program, SHRA will work with Kaufman and Broad of
Sacramento, Inc. Kaufman & Broad is in the stage of tearing down former military housing units
at the closed Mather Air Force Base site, and will build the same number of new houses. Instead
of outright mechanical demolition of these housing units, deconstruction would be done on a
selected number of houses.

SHRA reviews and authorizes projects within Sacramento County redevelopment areas such as
Mather AFB. They also conduct construction training and youth-build programs for low-income
trainees. Both these programs are compatible with deconstruction training, and as SHRA
oversees the development projects at Mather Field, they can coordinate with Kaufman & Broad
on which houses to deconstruct and use for the on-the-job training on deconstruction. Kaufman
& Broad has expressed interest and cooperation in having deconstruction training at their project
site.

Major Tasks/Outputs

Task 1. Select a Qualified Contractor(s)
SHRA shall select a contractor(s) that has access to the Mather housing development project.
The contractor(s) shall be qualified to accomplish the deconstruction training tasks listed in
Tasks 2 – 5.

Task 2. Develop Deconstruction Techniques Training Program
The contractor shall develop a training program that can be used to train workers in successful
deconstruction techniques. This training program should be designed to bring an unskilled
worker to the level of a skilled worker, and provide him/her with the knowledge to understand
the importance of deconstruction to maximize the recovery of reusable material and minimize
demolition debris destined to be landfilled. The training program should teach workers to

C. Support Training Materials
    Slides (if necessary)
    Overheads (if necessary)

Task 3. Train Crews Through Hands-On Deconstruction
The contractor shall implement deconstruction techniques through hands-on deconstruction at
Mather AFB. The contractor shall document success, problems, and suggest modifications to the
training program based on its hands-on training experience. It is expected that at least 5 houses
will be deconstructed.

Task 4. Document Marketing Strategy
The contractor shall document and report on the processing, managing, and marketing methods
employed during the deconstruction activity. The report shall include the type and quantity of
materials recovered, how they were managed, problems or success in marketing, and their final
destination.
